Dunno, it's definitely a Kuwahara headset and the crown fork lug looks very like the one on the Apollo IV I saw the other day. The only thing that looks slightly different is the shape of the above bottom bracket cable guides, which could be because of the respray.


Im pretty sure its a IV with a couple replacement parts....not far from my place actually, but...big bickies.
When in doubt......mumble.

Aren't these one of the first carbon fiber tubed frames with alu lugs? Referring to the Look.

That's actually carbon too. I was gonna bid on it one time, but he ended it early. I message him asking what's up with that, with the reply being that it needed work. The pics are still the same as before but the price is now much more(last time it was about $100).

Priced about right at start price or a little above. Would make a great daily.

Classic Australian made frame for the larger gent. Good buy.
Europa Cycles was started by Ezio and his son John Abeni in the early 70s.Ezio Abeni was a master frame builder in Itay and once moving to Australia showed his skills in Australia to produce the early ABENI and Europa road and track frames.

Yep, that one's in here already a few pages back. It's been up for many months now and the guy still hasn't worked out that a pair of snapped forks is a great way to put people off :lol: .

Any ideas on what model this is? Mentions Exage, so I guess 80-90s low-mid range bike?

A Giant Innova, with what looks like RSX cranks. The rest, I cant tell, but I do know that it aint worth $240, esp if its supposedly running Exage.

Anyway, this bike looks interesting. What sort of crank/groupset would this be? Looks like somesort of Suntour.

Shogun Team Issue, Tange Prestige Frame, converted to single speed but still with a 7 speed rear wheel. Looks to be in good nick, but too small for me, would love one of these in 60cm.

That's beautiful. Swoon.
A bit of digging and I turned up this thread discussing another Santa Lucia in Brisvegas, OP says that they are 'rumoured' to have been built by Hoffy.
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=12923&p=176145&hilit=santa+lucia#p176145

Also turned up another thread where an unmarked frame was thought to be a Santa Lucia, only to be shot down by the original frame builder!
"Just had a look at his... I can confirm that it is not a Santa Lucia Frame as my Dad and I built all the Santa Lucia bike basi int he 70's and 80's. Looks good though..

Keep the bike rolling!

Holy moly.
He is selling a pretty sweet pond yacht however. Go get that Yacht, bring your favourite bicycle with you, and let him ride it - the poor bugger must think cycling is the most difficult thing in the world and probably would benefit from riding a real bike.
